Prof. Samir Barua, M.Tech (IIT Kanpur), Fellow of IIMA (1980), was born on September 23, 1951 in Raipur. He joined the Institute in 1980 and was the first alumnus to become Director. The initial years of Prof. Barua’s tenure coincided with the global financial crisis—the Institute was not immune to its negative effects. When many institutions struggled with placements, IIMA’s credibility and the special efforts of the faculty members in charge of placements helped the Institute tide over the crisis. IIMA became an EQUIS-accredited institute in 2008. The Institute also managed to do well financially, with operating surpluses being generated for the first time in 2010-11.
